Roof trusses

Design and consultancy

We use the world leading design software developed by MiTek. This computer program can produce designs for almost any truss configuration and, if required, can prepare comprehensive roof layout drawings and details to the exact requirements of individual projects. The 3D graphics give an accurate picture of what each roof will look like from any perspective.

This system is generally accepted as the industry standard for contract costing and product design.
